We’ll make this short and sweet (updates throughout the day as events warrant).
Big Media lost big last night.
Obama lost big last night.
Obama’s campaign is not very bright, smart, or swift.
What’s the proof for the above statements? The proof is John Edwards has quit.

Recall, Big Media and Obama were laughing at Hillary and Florida. They said Florida was a “beauty contest”. Florida they said does not count. They mocked Hillary. Chris Matthews sneered. Keith Olbermann snickered.
But what happened? Hillary went to Florida to defend the rights of Florida voters. Hillary went to Florida to claim the laurel wreaths of victory. And Big Media had to acknowledge her victory. Hillary was interviewed all night long on Big Media television outlets. Hillary was shown at her victory rally. Hillary was shown over and over to be the winner of the Florida primary. Hillary beat Big Media, again.
Obama? Obama laughed at the results. Obama disrespected and snubbed Florida Democrats. In turn Florida Democrats snubbed Obama. Obama and his Big Media buddies laughed at Hillary and Florida. Florida and Hillary laughed right back. Lesson: don’t whine – Fight.
If Florida did not count, if Florida does not matter – WHY THEN DID EDWARDS QUIT THE RACE TODAY?
Florida was important and that is why Edwards left the race today.
Edwards faced a wall of Big Media silence regarding his campaign. He never found a way to fight effectively against the Big Media ignoring his campaign. As we wrote in our very first post, the opposition is Big Media. The Big Media Party is running their tool in this campaign. Obama is a tool.

Obama has once again proved himself a buffoon. Instead of countering Hillary’s event in Florida last night – Obama sulked. Obama hid. Obama ran from the field of battle.
Obama campaign operatives held conference calls, issued memos, and laughed heartily at Florida and Hillary. Obama scorned the voters of the extremely important state of Florida. Florida scorned right back.
Let’s all salute the Great State of Florida and the Great Democrats of Florida. Florida Democrats did not get a purple thumb, like Iraqis did, as proof that they voted. But Florida Democrats gained the respect of the nation. Florida Democrats voted in huge numbers and made themselves relevant.
Faced with a stupid DNC enforced non-campaign in Florida – the voters fought back. Grassroots activists campaigned for their favorite candidates. Florida voters responded. Over a million Florida Democrats voted. Florida Democrats would not be left out. Hillary received close to a million votes.

The battle for Florida is not over. Obama will fight to disenfranchise Florida voters. Hillary will fight for the rights of Florida voters.
